Portland can be overwhelming for locals and tourists alike. There are so many bars, restaurants, venues, and sporadic outdoor activities, that it can be difficult to navigate or even stay on top of the latest happenings.

Thankfully the local team at Portland Old Port stays on top of the best of the best events around town with their Weekend Guide.

The Portland Old Port team works all week long curating the can't miss events for each and every weekend in the Old Port. This can range from grand openings of new restaurants, can't miss DJ appearances, brewery anniversary parties, live music, food truck appearances and so much more. There really is something for everyone whether it be a 21-year-old looking to live it up in the Old Port for the first time, or a 40-year-old looking to live it up for the 100th time. Or perhaps for someone of more advanced age just looking for something different to do. The Weekend Guide hits all the marks.

At the end of each week, Portland Old Port releases the weekend guide. On the video guide, you may notice a familiar face. My face! I am so excited to come on board and host the Weekend Guide, even if I had to adjust to being in front of a camera instead of behind a mic. (Shout out to Neal at Portland Old Port, for his amazing editing skills to make it look like I almost know what I'm doing.)

This week you can catch Portland's own Viva at One Longfellow Square, head over to a craft beer festival that celebrates women in the beer industry and go to brunch in your jammies.

The Price Difference Between a Condo on Washington Ave in Portland, ME, and St. Louis, MO is Astounding

I found two condominiums. One in Portland. One in St. Louis. Both in their respective cities. Similar square footage. The major difference, of course, is the ever-important location, location, location. And, even with similar square footage, Portland has one bathroom up at St. Louis. Still, the price difference is massive. Portland comes in at a whopping $1,105,000. St. Louis? An easily digestible $110,000. That’s not a typo. 

Scroll until the end to see the breakdown of comparisons.
